Brown County is home to breathtaking scenery. We have some of the most rugged trails and hill terrain in Indiana. XBC guided Hill Climb Buggy tours will give both young and old a taste of a new brand of adventure. Our Hill Climb Buggy's are true to their name and will perform great in the snow, mud, water, or on dry ground. Hill Climb Buggy tours are offered March through November weather permitting. We are land stewards first and there is no charge if XBC chooses not to ride the trails when they are wet or extremely dry, thaw conditions, or high winds.
Our Side x Side 2 person Buggies are equipped with a roll cage and harnesses. Briefly switch drivers while XBC Tour Guides recreate Native American and Pioneer history. Scenic landscapes provide the perfect photo op or rent our Helmet Cam for $30 to capture the entire experience (please reserve in advance).
Hill Climb Buggy Tours are weather permitting, and actual routes and times may vary depending on trail conditions. All tours include instruction, helmet, and eye protection.
